We have a 14-node Microsoft Failover Cluster that has 4 networks configured.
2 iSCSI 10GbE networks for our SAN and CSVs - Cluster Use: None
1 Live Migration network - Cluster Use: Cluster Only
1 Production Network - Cluster Use: Cluster and Client
We have some planned maintenance occurring on the stack switches that run the Production network resulting in them being down for about 2 minutes at most. We ideally do not want to shutdown all VMs and Cluster for this as it will be only down while the switches reboot.
Outside of there being a small network blimp for VMs, will this negatively impact my Cluster? Example: My Cluster will not totally fail, shutdown, etc.
Taking them down point-blank would not be a happy place to be for the cluster.
What kind of network teaming and virtual switch setup is there on each node?
